Liverpool move to the top of the Premier League table and inflict a sixth successive defeat on rock-bottom Fulham with a 2-0 victory at Anfield.

The game sprang into life five minutes before half time as Mitrovic's header was ruled out for offside.

Mohamed Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri struck the goals for the Reds to overcome the Cottagers and take their points tally to 30 after 12 matches - their joint-best ever total at this stage of a campaign in the Premier League era.

Aleksandar Mitrovic thought he had given Fulham the lead in the 41st minute when he headed in, only to see the assistant referee raise his flag for offside.

"I've checked the clips and Robertson didn't sufficiently squeeze up, my player is onside and it is a goal", the under-pressure Fulham manager said. We created, we passed, we accelerated in the right moments. Instead of being 1-0 up we are 1-0 down.

"In this country normally you can not show disrespect to the referee and this is a problem because it's shown disrespect to my team, myself and Fulham supporters". We scored twice, maybe it's a bit odd that one was after a quick restart and one after a set-piece, the second ball phase, but that's very important as well that you have these situations and you can use it. We didn't defend this counterattack well but this counterattack should not have existed. It's simple. They know they didn't offer enough, and we need to encourage them to push forward.

Alisson took the free-kick quickly, Trent Alexander-Arnold played a lovely ball down the line and Salah made no mistake with a one-on-one.

After an impeccably-observed minute's silence to mark the centenary of the Armistice in World War I, it was Liverpool who started the stronger. I'm not going to stay in our box and wait for 0-0; it sometimes happens, but it's many times you don't find any result. It's still hard to tell. I don't want to compare it but against Arsenal we scored a clearer goal which was not offside and didn't get it.

"So far, Fulham have always had a football-playing idea and today you saw it - after winning the second ball they were on their toes, they played football but with a lot of long build-up, a lot of long situations and Mitrovic did outstandingly well in these situations". It's hard to see for the ref but there's a clear foul on Robbo. I'm not sure which Fulham player kept him. But before that somebody had held him.

We think Mitrovic is clearly on side, but have your say below on whether you think the Fulham man is on side. The reaction was brilliant.
